Work Overview

Like a shoal of fish, the vocal ensemble is conceived of as a collective unity, both multifarious and singular at the same time - loosening, tightening, drifting apart and snapping together in unison. Ebbing between solo and chorale, the individual and the community, a polyphony of seemingly separate elements aggregate towards a self-conscious whole.
